In Today!

“Never let yesterday use up too much of today.” — Will Rogers

Freedom of the bondage of self for me came in the form of fear of my past.  I carried the burden of shame in my life.  I burned bridges, including friendships, employment, credit, and family.   I lived in fear of everything in my life, I feared God, answering the phone, seeing people in the street, going to work.  I feared waking up in the morning, my first fearful thought in the morning was what did I do last night?

Obviously this is no way to live.  Drug and alcohol addiction kept a pit in my stomach.  Recovery slowly alleviated the fear.  Starting with ceasing the behaviors that created more damage and ultimately more fear.  Acceptance of my past, forgiveness of myself, forgiveness of others especially those I hurt most and amending my behavior in order to become the man I could be proud of.
It has been a journey and continuous journey to be honest.  I would love to say I have gone on mistake free in my recovery but that is the furthest thing from the truth.  What I can report is that today I can lay my head on my pillow and go to sleep.  I can wake up in the morning without fear and know what I did last night.   Recovery rocks!  Life is good!

Go, Go, Go…
